Trusting Science in an Age of Distrust In the light of current public debates about fake news and anti-expertism, survey results offer valuable insights into public perceptions of science. Where do people get in touch with or feel affected by science? Which parts of society are in favour of science and which oppose research? And which scientific disciplines and research fields are especially distrusted by people? Based on results of different science surveys in Europe, we will discuss how to build trust in science as well as which implications can be derived for science policy and science communication on a European level.

SRA annual conference 2017: Social Research in a Sceptical Age The current climate of scepticism towards ‘experts’ has put many research practitioners and users on the defensive. Is it enough simply to assert the value of rigorous methods, or should we be checking, sharpening and improving our tools? If ‘post-truth’ carries real meaning then the pressure is on researchers to find a positive response – such as clearly communicating our findings and why they matter; and demonstrating how high standards in design, conduct and analysis are built in to our research London, UK more details...

Engage Conference 2017 - Exploring Collaboration The promise of collaboration is enormous: as a route to sharing expertise and working together to do purposeful work that makes a difference. For universities, it can be a route to better research and teaching, and to express universities’ commitment to engaging more productively with society. Recent years have seen a flowering of approaches: from citizen science to co-production; from patient involvement to urban ‘labs’. Whilst there can be huge benefits, the practice of collaboration can be challenging. Indeed, challenge can be a key ingredient for healthy partnerships. Engage 2017 will take stock of what we are learning about how to realise the promise of collaboration. Looking across the spectrum of collaborative approaches, it will showcase cutting edge practice and share the latest thinking from within higher education and beyond. Bristol, UK more details...

12th Scientix Projects' Networking Event on Gender and Innovation in STE(A)M Education Gender aspects continue to play an important role in science education, conditioning study choices or shaping beliefs about one's own capacities and those of others. Performing arts based initiatives are on the forefront of innovative science education approaches and have participatory, dialogic and dialectic qualities to engage students in democratic and inclusive ways of learning. This workshop aims to bring together both concerns in order to explore how arts-based science education can also address gender bias and stereotypes in educational and team-collaborative settings.
